How I can build a HMG applications ?
Build.Bat / HMG-IDE
The easiest way is to use the ‘build.Bat’ file located at \hmg folder.
Build [/i|/r|/d|/cs|/ci/cr] <PrgFile> | <filelist.hbp> [config.hbc]
[/i] : incremental build
[/r] : incremental build (rebuild all)
[/cs] : Console/mixed mode (std build)
[/ci] : Console/mixed mode (incremental build)
[/cr] : Console/mixed mode (incremental rebuild all)
[/d] : Debug mode (gui and console)
<filelist.hbp> : A text file with .hbp extension containing a source list.
<configfile.hbc>: A text file with configuration parameters as additional libs, include paths and lib paths.
incpaths = incpath1 incpath2 … incpathn
libpaths = libpath1 libpath2 … libpathn
libs = lib1 lib2 … libn
mt = yes (multi-threading support)
– library names must not include ‘lib’ prefix nor ‘.a’ extension.
– ‘build.bat’ will create an ‘error.log’ file in the app folder when build process ends with an error condition.
– <.hbc> files in the current folder are automatically processed.
– HMG IDE
This programming environment allows visual form editing and application build.
Environment settings (HMG Folder, Program Editor, etc.) are stored in ‘.ini’ files, located at IDE folder.You can interactively change default settings (Main Menu->Tools->Preferences).
In IDE, all build customizations must be handled by the user from ‘Configuration’ (project browser) tab. It is direct edit of the project .hbc file. Look at hbmk2 help for details. By default two gt drivers are ALWAYS linked: GTGUI (as default) and GTWIN (Windows console). To create console/mixed mode apps. you only must add this line to your main .prg: HB_GT_WIN_DEFAULT
When upgrading HMG, please, clean previous build data from your projects using incremental building. From command line, you must add the -clean parameter. From IDE, use the ‘Reset project incremental data’ option from the project menu.
